If you open up nautilus, in the Edit | Preferences | Views you can set the default zoom. I set mine to 75% and it makes the desktop icons look a little more sensible at 1024x768. If there's a better way to do this (shrink the desktop icons without shrinking those in nautilus) that doesn't involve manually streching all the desktop icons, I'd love to hear about it.
